New Hampshire income taxes
New Hampshire is one of the few states that do not impose a state income tax on earned income, making it quite tax-friendly for wage earners.
However, there is a 5% tax on interest and dividends, which can impact certain taxpayers, particularly those with significant investment income. There are no standard deductions or personal exemptions due to the lack of broader income tax.
State income tax brackets
New Hampshire does tax income from interest and dividends, however. The Interest and Dividends Tax is a flat rate of 5%. The standard exemption for that tax is $2,400 for Single and $4,800 for married persons filing jointly, so taxpayers with income from interest and dividends below that amount do not have to pay any taxes. Additional exemptions of $1,200 are available to residents who are either 65 years or older, blind or disabled and unable to work.
Taxpayers with income from interest and dividends above their total exemption will pay taxes only on the amount that exceeds the exemption. Say, for example, a single filer earns $6,000 in interest annually. They would pay $180 in taxes, because the 5% tax only applies to the $3,600 above their exemption.
